    Part of the Memoria Press Junior Kindergarten program, this versatile craft book provides parents/teachers with a fun array of craft projects, all using easy to find items. Projects are divided into three categories: literature crafts, letter crafts and review day crafts, all designed to reinforce letter recognition, strengthen fine motor skills and promote creativity in young learners.

    In the literature section, 33 classic children's books are represented with craft projects. While it is not necessary to read the books, these would make excellent extension activities for any preschool or kindergarten program. A sampling of books included are: 10 Little Rubber Ducks, Andy and the Lion, Curious George, Green Eggs and Ham, Guess How Much I love You, Little Red Hen, Madeline, Office Buckle and Gloria, Snow, The Runaway Bunny plus many others. The 27 letter crafts (2 crafts for the letter E) provide a wonderful reinforcement tool for the Memoria Press Alphabet Books or any letter sounds book you may be using. Many of the letter crafts are unique compared to other alphabet focused craft books, for example, "G is for Gum" gives children the opportunity to color a gumball machine and utilize 1" colored construction paper circles to create gumballs for their machine. Review day crafts are season-specific and correlated to the Junior Kindergarten lesson plans, although, once again, it would be very easy to use independent of the Memoria Press lessons.

    The last half of the book provides templates for the above craft projects. A complete supply list is found at the front of the book, and each activity provides a check list for necessary supplies prior to the step-by-step teacher guidelines. For the non-crafty or busy parent/teacher, this book offers a wealth of ideas that are easy to implement. PB. ~Deanne

    What could you do with 854 photo-quality die-cuts? Ask your children that question and see what they come up with for ideas. Rocks and minerals, leaves and shells, flowers and twigs can be used in countless ways in your art or science projects. How about just making some interesting jewelry or pictures frames? Maybe a color study collage using all greens or all browns in a study of tone and texture would be fun. Students of any age can use these to bring out whatever may be hiding in their imaginations. This is quite a value for the number of die-cuts in this pack. Each image is two-sided too! Paper is about the weight of a nice gift wrap. ~ Sara

    Moms, this is a good one to have in the arsenal! Craft Camp sounds like a summer of fun, just like the creative projects inside, but this goes beyond that.
